Cowboys WR Miles Austin Missed 3rd Straight Practice


Sep 22, 2013; Arlington, TX, USA; Dallas Cowboys receiver Miles Austin (19) is tackled by St. Louis Rams cornerback Janoris Jenkins (21) after a catch in the second quarter at AT

Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin has missed his 3rd straight day of practice and his status looks doubtful for this weekend’s game against the San Diego Chargers. Austin has been dealing with a hamstring injury and was not present in practice today.

Austin has caught 15 passes for 125 yards in the first 3 games of the season. With Austin likely out, rookie WR Terrance Williams could get the start.

Having Austin on the sideline would be a huge relief for the Chargers secondary. We already have to slow down Dez Bryant in the passing game. Having another threat on the outside like Austing would be tough.
